Visiting the beauty salon is something I do on a regular basis for waxing and eyelash tinting. It’s definitely functional rather than therapeutic, but that’s not to say I don’t enjoy it. My beautician Yvette, who has become a close friend, always remarks on my unflinching demeanour when she removes the wax strips, to which I can honestly reply, that any discomfort is over ridden by the fact I am lying down on a heated bed during the day.
Something of a treat.
My latest visit was a little different though because as well as my usual treatments, I had a Neom Organics massage. Neom is a dedicated well-being brand, (with women behind the brand and based locally in Harrogate as well as London), and all products are 100% natural and promise to relieve stress, calm and relax, aid sleep, boost energy and lift the mood.
Well-being is something I’ve given quite a lot of thought to lately, I’ve been taking more walks, drinking more water, taking multi-vitamins, reading more and putting the laptop away earlier. I feel so much better since making these small changes and definitely more relaxed.
But, nothing could compare with how relaxed I felt during these blissful 90 minutes.
There is a choice of three therapeutic Neom treatments, each consisting of guided breathing and meditation (a recording), shiatsu, cranio and Thai massage and reflexology.
After a short discussion, Yvette and I decided that the sleep and de-stress treatment was the one for me, the others being the Neom Energise Treatment and The Neom Happiness Treatment.
My treatment used, among others, a beautiful blend of lavender and jasmine oils within a warm wax which was massaged in from my scalp to my toes, including key relieving points on my head, face, neck and back.
I felt utterly relaxed and serene afterwards and could have easily and very happily fallen asleep.
Yvette is passionate about well-being and is completely dedicated to her clients, focussing particularly on their well-being. She has total belief in the products she uses and runs her business with integrity, only recommending what she truly believes will be of benefit to the client.
I can’t recommend this treatment or Yvette enough and the Neom products are divine, some of which I bought to use at home.
The treatment has set me up perfectly for my upcoming break with Adam.
My blog will also be taking a mini break for a few days, but follow me on Instagram and Facebook for updates and lots of beautiful photographs.
